Generational Stamping In My Weeds & Wildflowers Devotional


Sometimes I’ve used a certain technique so many times that I put it on the back burner and forget about it for a while. There are so many fun, new things out there to try and so little time to try them all! But when I got my Illustrated Faith’s Weeds & Wildflowers devotional, it absolutely screamed generational stamping!


If you’re not familiar with the term, generational stamping is simply stamping twice without reinking in between. This gives you a lighter version of the same color on the same stamped image. It’s totally easy and so much fun.


In the Weeds & Wildflowers kit, there is a clear stamp set that includes this beautiful flower. I loaded it up with brown ink.


The first stamp looks like you would expect, dark and colorful and beautiful.


Then I turned the card and stamped again, using just the ink that remained on the stamp. It produces the same color, just lighter and slightly less detailed.


The result is a beautiful, two-toned card. You can do this with a variety of colors, images and papers, even combining all of them for a completely unique and totally amazing finished piece.
